Have had this app for at least a year now and never had a problem. Every game it comes with is fun and keeps my 6 year old very occupied. I even have fun with it myself lol. We love the Gruffalo movie & this app is great. Love the music too.

Mouse and Gruffalo

These games are fun to play. There's a set of six jigsaws, tic tac toe, snap, nut catching, matching a pair of something, and matching the pattern. Some of the games can be a little challenging, but not too much. They're all one player vs computer, so you can't take turns to play a game together, but it's still fun to try and beat someone's best time on a game. Designed towards children, but a nice break for adults too!

Too competitive!

My son might be a little young for this game, but he understands the concepts. What is frustrating to me is that in the tic-tac-toe and "snap" games: he CAN'T win. I am not one of those parents that is trying to falsely build my kid's self-concept, but seriously: how can this be considered a kids game?
